Post-Tropical Cyclone Teresa Discussion Number   5

Teresa has continued to consist of just a swirl of low-level clouds 
since last night. Although a convective band persists a couple 
hundred miles northeast of the low center, the system no longer 
meets the definition of a tropical cyclone. Strong 
west-southwesterly wind shear should prevent any regeneration of 
convection near the center. All of the global models show the 
remnant low degenerating into an open trough by Sunday morning.  

Teresa has been moving eastward or 090/4 kt during the past 12 
hours.  A turn to the northeast is expected within the next couple 
of hours as the cyclone moves in the southwesterly flow ahead of a 
deep-layer trough.  The northeastward motion should continue until 
the low dissipates Sunday morning.
